Anti-Bush protest today in Times Square
11/2/05 | Personal Responsibility

Posted on 11/02/2005 5:25:46 AM PST by Personal Responsibility

I just received an email at work that says

The New York City World Can't Wait Committee (an anti-President Bush group) will stage a protest march on November 2, 2005 starting from Union Square at 2:30 pm. They should arrive in Times Square via Broadway between West 40th St and West 42nd St at approximately 3:30 pm. They are to remain there until about 5:30 pm.

Event organizers say they expect up to 5,000 people but also have said that number could be well overestimated.

For reference sake, it was a security advisory warning email that contained this information. We always receive notice whenever something is going on in Times Square.

If I was an employer, I'd be inclined to fire somebody who walked off the job as a "politcal statement."

i emailed a friend of mine who works a few blocks away. I asked him if he had his "Go home commie" placards with him.

I don't have a super soaker but I *do* work four blocks from the biggest Toys R Us in the world....what a funny idea!

And, from www.worldcantwait.net:
BATTLE TO DRIVE OUT THE BUSH REGIME INTENSIFIES,
180 ACTIONS SET FOR NOVEMBER 2nd


October 31, 2005

For Immediate Release
Contact: Connie Julian, 917-449-9064

On November 2, in 67 cities, 43 colleges and universities, and 90 high schools (at last count), there will be walk-outs and demonstrations-- mass public outpourings launching a new movement with a single, practical objective: to drive out the Bush regime.

The Miers withdrawal, Libby's indictment, US torture policy, the ongoing bloodbath in Iraq, Bush's nomination of extreme-right wing Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr. ("Scalito") to the Supreme Court - these rapidly cascading developments make clear that this regime is determined to "radically remake society very quickly, in a fascist way, and for generations to come," as the World Can't Wait Call says.

"There's NEVER been a regime like this in the U.S, and World Can't Wait is also unprecedented: a movement aimed at driving out a sitting president and his whole program through a massive popular movement," Sunsara Taylor, an initiator of World Can't Wait, said Monday.

Battles are brewing in New York City, Los Angeles and other cities over high school walk-outs that day. Then on Monday, Hot 97, the NYC urban radio station, backed out of an agreement to run a paid ad for November 2, created by Boots Riley of The Coup. To hear the ad:
http://www.worldcantwait.org/media/nov2nyc.mp3

The Call to Drive Out the Bush Regime has been signed by world-renowned artists and public figures including Harold Pinter, Jane Fonda, Kurt Vonnegut, Alice
Walker, Eve Ensler, Gore Vidal, Richard Serra, Cindy Sheehan, Howard Zinn, Michael Eric Dyson, Russell Banks and Cornel West. The list continues to grow.

"The Bush Administration is the most dangerous force that has ever existed. It is more dangerous than Nazi Germany because of the range and depth of its activities and intentions worldwide. I give my full support to the Call to "Drive out the Bush Regime.""
--Harold Pinter, Nobel Laureate playwright

At the rallies around the country, an important announcement from organizers will be made about next steps in the movement to Drive Out the Bush Regime.

I can't wait to see how many people actually show up. My guess is their combined number of teeth will not equal 5000, nor will their lifetime number of showers or shaves, times they washed their clothes etc....

This is absolute lunacy...I sometimes find myself wondering how people can be so easily misled (like a bunch of ignorant sheep) by the MSM and the radical left...then I wake up. These people do not really deserve to live in this country. My stomach churns violently when I read about pathetic morons like these people...

Some of the brainiancs from today expressing their 'like total bumming on Bush':

http://www.ny1.com/ny1/content/index.jsp?stid=1&aid=54682

“I don't think Bush knows what he's doing at all. I think he's completely made a huge mess and I'm completely against him. So whatever I can do to express that to people and spread the word so that people understand that,” said one participant.

“I came out here because I feel there are much more important issues going on that passing science. I think that what Bush is doing is completely, completely wrong. I think that the situation in Iraq is just totally messed up. I mean there are children and babies being bombed,” added another.

They also "anticipated" 5,000 here in L.A. We'll see; it's a couple of hours away.

It could be the "World Can't Wait" idea is just to tie up traffic, disrupt normal life ... much like those guys we call terrorists.

Wow, pretty powerful argument. I think you convinced me Talia. I don't support the BFEE anymore. ;-)

Here are pics of the action at Union Square today. We counter protesters didn't bother to follow them to Times Square, as we went back to work, school, etc.
Enjoy the pictures:

To: EnigmaticAnomaly; All

The Times Square protest was much ado about nothing. I got out of work around 5 and went over to where the ESPNZone is on 42nd and Broadway. There were maybe, MAYBE, 75 people there. Of course, the NY Slimes will report it as "many" or "dozens" of protestors but then, that's the Slimes.

The people walking by while being harrassed by the moonbats generally ignored them. A couple of cabbies honked their horns at the protestors. Or it could have been that they honked at the pretty ladies crossing the street. You never can tell with NY cabbies.

Some drivers shouted incoherently from their cars. My guess is they were late for the rally or could not find anywhere to park.

All in all this was, to no one's surprise, a complete bust for the moonbats.

I guess the 5,000 didn't vote for Bloomberg (R) who won as Mayor of NY again! ;)
